I was treated out by my insurance company (I've been trapped in the Atlantic City area for almost 3 weeks after my partner was hit on a crosswalk in the outlet shops) and what a treat!

Beautiful restaurant with great service. We had a lovely meal although I will say that the seared tuna was not prepared as we had hoped. I would not let it deter me though, as everything was delicious and all the food I saw being served looked amazing and lots of compliments from other diners. Loved the pretzel roll! I'd come...

It was the best happy hour 4-6! So many different oysters to choose from for $1.00! The oysters cooked in a champagne leek sauce is to die for and other cooked oyster options such as buffalo and Parmesan. The raw oysters - so many to choose from. A diverse menu during happy hour with crazy low prices and a five... More

Dinner with friends was a fun night out, but don't look for a quiet space. Amazing food, wonderful service, pricey menu- but well worth it when the food is unique and delicious. Not much for non-seafood lovers, but I do like flounder & the potato crusted dish was great. Save room for dessert, the cheese pie is TO DIE FOR!!

Typical high end seafood classic. Great choices. The cold lobster was just right. So was the Oyster soup. Service as good.
